Flyers goalie Mason has broken finger
Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason sustained an injury to his finger and will be sidelined from on-ice training for two weeks, the team said Thursday.

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason sustained an injury to his finger and will be sidelined from on-ice training for two weeks, the team said Thursday.

"Steve Mason broke his right pinky finger playing hockey in Oakville, Ontario on Sunday, July 27," general manager Ron Hextall said in a statement. "Mason will miss approximately two weeks of on-ice training but will continue with his off-ice training."

Mason was 33-18-7 in his first full season with the Flyers, with a 2.50 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.

He had an upper-body injury prior to the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs but returned to go 2-2 with a 1.97 GAA and .939 save percentage in a seven-game loss to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference First Round.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
